Why a Son Needs a Mom is one son�s loving reflection on what his mother brought to his life as well as the aspirations she has been able to fulfill in part because of what he has brought to hers. "When I sat down to write," Greg Lang explains, "I wanted to express the essence of what I think the relationship I have shared with my mom has been all about." He began to ponder the things they did together and how important they were to his development as a boy. He thought of the wisdom he gained from her and how, as he has grown older, those moments have become so important to him. "The first time I read what I had written," he notes, "I saw a list of things she had brought to my life. When I thought about it more, I realized that not only had she enriched my life, but that she, too, continues to draw strength from the reservoirs of love and respect that have grown between us over the years."
The result is a book that will both inspire mothers and remind sons of the importance their mothers have had in their lives, providing love and nurture and instilling in them the qualities that will serve them well as men.
